Cathy: Hey there, I recently discovered your amazing channel in YouTube and you are answering the questions that I am pondering about for years, I’m aiming to do my Masters in public health focusing in Sex Education in San Francisco in a couple of years and your insights had been so valuable, could you share any thoughts and advice you have? This is Reid Mihalko from http://www.ReidAboutSex.com and…
Reid: Cathy Vartuli http://www.SexGeekSummerCamp.com when I’m wearing Sex Geek Summer Camp T-shirt it means this is business advice for sex educators, workshop facilitators, healers, and sex positive entrepreneurs, anyone who has business trying to reach people and maybe this is about sex and love and intimacy.
Cathy: I’m Cathy Vartuli from http://www.TheIntimacyDojo.com
Reid: So my advice? Like every video that has this shirt? Advice for what?
Cathy: Being in Public Health focusing on Sex Education.
Reid: Okay... Good.
Cathy: If you listened to the first question.
Reid: Huh? What? Advice on being in Public Health and sex education, I mean that’s not my area of specialty.
Cathy: But sex education is.
Reid: Yeah, but I don’t work. While I work with people who work in public health, I don’t work for an organization or a non-profit, or anything like that, a business that deals specifically with public health.
Cathy: So this person is coming from a different area, so it might be nice to give them like ways to connect them to the community. Well if San Francisco has a plethora of different things, center for sex cultures are wonderful, you may want to start connecting with different newsletters before you move in to the area, because doing the classes are amazing, I’m so glad you’re going to do that and help spread sex education and help people be healthier but knowing community support and people that are in the trenches versus education which is in the classroom is not always, I don’t know what school you are going to but some classes are more statistical and not talking about actual experiences people are having. So if you have connections and people that can kind of guide you and let you interact with people that are in the public, like it’s more specific, it’s more personal. If you can build, if you can build some relationships, so I would encourage you before you come out to start connecting with some of the groups here, Center for Sex and Culture, What else do you have in mind?
Reid: Especially the San Francisco Sex Information Hotline, they have a wonderful 2 month-training that is pretty kick-ass. There’s a lot of people that are Swiss ears. You’ve got the Center for Sex and Culture, you’ve got body storytelling.
Cathy: Oh that’s wonderful.
Reid: Which is great for a lot of the community of sex geeks and sex nerds.
Cathy: They have podcast now and the live stream for a lot of their shows so you could start knowing people and getting some of the story for the community.
Reid: You know, I’ll give a shout out for Sex Geek Summer Camp.
Cathy: That’s wonderful.
Reid: As a business retreat for sex geeks and nerds and we got lots of different people who come there from lot of different environments and areas of the sex ed world. From bloggers to folks that are in the military working in health services, to sex educators that are you know, working inside of sex toy companies, or owning sex toys stores, workshop leaders and facilitators like myself and people doing online courses and what not, podcasters, like there’s a, it’s good mixing pot of a lot of different demographics inside of the sex ed world and if you are coming here to go to school, reaching out in San Francisco, in the East bay in general, Oakland and what not, even San Jose, these are places where there are a lot of educators and so you can start to build up your community. Not all of these people are working in public health, they are working in other areas in the sex ed world and there’s a lot of overlap.
Cathy: Yeah, a lot of networking you can do and resources you could find. We hope this helps, we’re really glad you’re out there. We need more educators, more people spreading the word!
Reid: Yup! Bye!
